What is the difference about life in Portugal and life in UK?

The first thing you notice about the UK is the weather, unlike Portugal; England is very cloudy and not so sunny. The next thing is the food, in England the food is quite multi-cultural, but this is not the case in Portugal. In terms of entertainment and leisure, England is very eventful with lots of recreational activities and frequent concerts. Also in the UK, there are lots of opportunities for personal, cultural and professional development.
